True Blood 510: “Gone, Gone, Gone”

This episode was both wildly touching and wildly frustrating. I’ll start with the frustrating part. Now that Bill’s gone completely off the deep end, he’s turned into this power hungry, Bible toting Lilith drone, constantly trying to convert whoever he can get his hands on. In his crosshairs currently is of course, Eric, one who is adamantly against all this Lilith bullshit. Bill isn’t too keen on his defiance, so he forces him to ingest some of Lilith’s blood so that he and Nora can have a moment or whatever. Much to Nora’s surprise, Godric shows up first....

Eddard Stark: A Man of Honour

The thing you need to know about Eddard Stark is how honorable the man is. No, really. He is so honorable that he ended up dying because of it. With his death came an indelible sadness. But let me tell you about how Eddard Stark lived. He was just, brave, dutiful, a seasoned soldier, a loving husband and father, a fair ruler and a loyal friend. That is how fans want to remember him. He lacked the phony airs that graced the court at King’s Landing. We were happy to see someone not sucking up or trying to back stab someone else to get ahead. Eddard Stark is the kind of guy you want for your...

Web Gem Wednesday – Game of Thrones VFX; Arya’s New Roles; GoT Gets Buzzed

Web Gems is intended to give you an entertaining, and hopefully humorous, look at your favorite HBO shows and the actors that make them great. After all, these people aren’t just the characters they play; they are real people, with real interests. They do stupid and rather embarrassing things just like everyone else. But also show us just how awesome they really are. My plan is to bring you a collection of videos, pictures, tweets, and fan creations that I have found while surfing this thing we call the internet. Various sources have been used, multiple avenues explored, and everything is...

Review: The Newsroom, “5/1″

Review: The Newsroom, “5/1″

Titled “5/1”, in reference to May 1, 2011, the seventh episode covers the day when Osama Bin Laden was killed by American Special Forces. However, what seemingly should have been a great episode – full of pride, patriotism, and heroism – turned into a meaningless entanglement of relationship drama, meaningless sitcom-styled jokes, and an unhealthy dose of Sorkin’s pro-Liberal banter. The episode begins at Will’s high-flying bachelor pad for the “one year and one day” anniversary of News Night 2.0. While the team is busy celebrating, something is afoot because Charlie...

True Blood Season 5: Only 3 Episodes Left

It seems like only yesterday we were complaining about “waiting sucking” and cursing HBO for not getting True Blood season 5 on the air more quickly.  Now, as the summer winds down we all have to face the fact that True Blood will again go dark for the season.  But fear not, Trubies!  True Blood season 6 has been announced and a premiere date of next summer is certainly expected.  So find yourself a coffin or a dark brick of concrete to keep your mortal self fresh for eight months or so.  Here’s a bit of a teaser trailer that HBO has put together in honor of the final 3...

True Blood 509: “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”

Hello again my devoted Truebies! Sorry I was away last week, but vacation called. Now that I’m back, let’s get down to business. And business is good! Picking up from last week’s episode, Lafayette is back to being the good old sassy as hell Lafayette that we all know and love. Where that Lafayette went, I don’t know, but I do know it’s really good to see him back to his old self. I LOVE IT. That brujo shit did not look good on him. He wins runner-up for Snarky Bite of the Week with this hilarious oneliner: “I ain’t gchat for dead...

Why I would pay $20 a month for HBO online

April chimes in this morning with her thoughts on online HBO-only HBO subscriptions.  Follow her on witter @LostApril! With the current state of certain satellite providers choosing not to renew certain channels, I thought it would be appropriate to explain why people would like to see HBO available online for a monthly fee. This can certainly apply to other networks as well. 1.     I don’t want to deal with my provider anymore – So the satellite company dropped the other 2 channels you care about. Now the only reason you have *insert satellite provider name* is for HBO.  Why not...

An adaptation of Stephen King’s Sci-Fi Western Dark Tower might have new life, and may be coming to HBO.

2012 London Olympics: Team Westeros

First off, I love the Olympics. Some of my best childhood memories come from watching the Games with my mom, cheering for our home countries. I remember watching the original “Dream Team” take home Gold in Barcelona, and the emotional moment as Derek Redmond’s father helped his son cross the finish line. I remember when Kerri Strug courageously vaulted her way to a Gold Medal on a badly hurt ankle; and when Michael Johnson smashed the record books on his way to becoming the “fastest man alive”. I also remember Usain Bolt breaking Johnson’s record 12 years later, and when Steve...
